Anita is beyond amazing! We loved our cooking experience with her. She gets everyone involved and is so great with kids. We learned so much about the food and culture of San Pedro.

Just moved to Panajachel and this was easily the best activity we had done so far! What a great way to use our hands to connect with Mayan culture.... and a delicious meal came out of it. Plus, Anita is a superstar instructor! Definitely recommend.

Anita is amazing. This is one of the most enjoyable days I have ever spent. I loved going to the market and then making pepian. Anita was so very lovely. If you do one thing while near Pana, book with Anita.

Nothing. This experience was outstanding. Yes, going to the market and experiencing the hustle and bustle of the Guatemalan women shopping for their food for the day was an interesting experience into another culture’s daily life. Anita is the main attraction here though. She is...More
